Etosha National Park
Best time to visit
Namibia is a great year-round destination, but the best game viewing, especially in the Etosha National Park, is from May to October whenthe weather is clear and dry and wildlife flock to watering holes. From November to April, some days will be humid and rain may follow, often in afternoon thunderstorms. It can be trickier to see animals as they tend to scatter then and not congregate around watering holes.
Traveller tip: Make sure you have adequate sun protection, even in the winter months. So pack a hat and lots of sunblock!
This is the best time for game viewing throughout Namibia, especially at Etosha National Park. The weather is clear and dry which means wildlife will be flocking to watering holes.
Summer rain turns this coastal region into a lush green country and occasionally floods the desert. In December, watch the wildlife at Etosha National Park and bird watch all summer long in the drier regions of Namibia.
